Attempting to retain its loyal iTunes following Apple has launched iTunes Match in the UK with the subscription based service handed a £21.99 annual fee
Following a brief premature arrival and much confusion Apple’s iTunes Match subscription service has officially hit the UK bringing revised audio to user’s systems.
Having made a short appearance across UK, French and Australian markets on Wednesday before quickly being pulled, iTunes Match is back seemingly for good with the subscription based service handed a sub-£25 annual fee.
Tasked with ensuring users remain loyal to Apple’s iTunes ecosystem instead of jumping ship to similar offerings from rivals Google and Amazon, iTunes Match scans users hard drives for music, replacing old MP3s with new, high-quality 256kbps iTunes tracks.
All these crisp new tunes can then be streamed across any of the user’s iOS powered devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), Apple TV and iTunes enabled Macs.
